Great. This is a great app. My only complaint would be that if u have runners on and the batter walks then it is obvious that everyone moves up a base. This should be auto done. Sometimes it is hard to tell who you are trying to move. All that being said I still like it. Change a couple of things and I give it 5 stars. I still recommend this app.
Ironically, it is difficult to score a DP I have been using scoring apps since they were in DOS format. I have scored for high school and college baseball teams. I know scoring. Currently, my interest is in teaching my nephew to keep score at NY Mets games. This app seems simple to use at first, but as soon as things get more complicated than a simple 6-3 or f8, you're in for a challenge. This app was very frustrating to use. We have been using iScore with the MLB addition for the last few games, it is rather expensive, but it is worth it; it is completely intuitive unlike this app.
Correction "Clunky at best. When a batter hits a grounder to force out a player already on base for the third out, that batter will then lead off the next inning. And there's nothing you can do about it. None of the contact links on the 643 faq page linked to anything so no way of finding out how to score a simple force and have the correct batter lead off the next inning. Doesn't appear to be written by someone whose ever scored a game with paper and pencil" The previous was the result of alot of frustration. I WAS contacted by the app's designer and given all the information I needed to avoid that scenario in the future, and in fairness changed my review. I still think there could be improvements to fix a user screw up, but overall it's a very good app, and the customer service is actually first rate.
Frustrating To make this a 5 star app, they need better editing capabilities. I wanted to delete a wrong at bat, and it is not possible. Messed up my scorecard because of that. I wanted to change a hit but the edit screen won't let me. I want to love this app, but it you aren't nearly perfect entering the at bats, you are out of luck and will end up with an incorrect scorecard.
Repetitious that takes too long, choose the play for out but then have to choose ball location too? Duh if right field caught or picked up and fielded then that's obviously ball location. Its simple to record but that is its flaw as its slower to do things on it than pencil and paper still. Its probably fine for MLB or college where errors rarely happen as a result the action is slower but for little league and Jr high forget it cuz everything moves way too fast due to error runs. That's not the programs fault just letting you know.
Great job! I really like this definitely worth the money. Takes some getting used to but if you know anything about score keeping you can get it pretty easily. Could use some more customizable features. Easily start a game can drop into the middle of a game no problem.
